Bobby Starr and his crew from Mountaineer Gas Company repaired a leaking pipe on Stratton Street directly in front of Hot Cup Mon., August 5. Starr says the leak was occurring in the main pipe on Stratton Street.
The men began working around 1:30 p.m. and expected to be finished by around 8:30 that same evening. After they finish, the crew will fill the hole in and a contractor will finish the job by setting concrete and then topping it with black top. Starr says downtown jobs like this one are usually on rush. He expects the concrete to be poured within the next few days.
